Description: Osgood is relishing the chance to get more work at wide receiver after years of playing almost exclusively on special teams in San Diego. He had one catch for a 24-yard touchdown in the opening win over Denver.
Insight: Osgood has a ways to go to reach fantasy relevance, but we'll see if he can develop further as an offensive asset. The team's pending re-addition of Ernest Wilford seems to add a similar player. (

Description: Kassim Osgood has failed to impress on the minicamp practice field so far as a wide receiver.
Insight: That's too bad as the Jaguars have an anemic receiving corps that could use some help. If he can't break into this crew, though, Osgood is unlikely to catch on in a big way anywhere. (

Description: Kassim Osgood confirmed that the Jags promised him an opportunity to be a legitimate receiver when they signed him last month
Insight: He could hardly be in a better spot than receiver-starved Jacksonville. Osgood is the largest receiver on the squad and could emerge as a red zone threat. (

Description: Osgood met with the Jaguars on Thursday but left without a contract.
Insight: That's not a big surprise. Osgood hasn't been able to make a fantasy impact with pass heavy San Diego, so it's doubtful he would be able to do it elsewhere. (

Description: Osgood is going to test free agency and will not return to the Chargers, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune.
Insight: Osgood was low on the Chargers' depth chart at WR and has little fantasy value. (

Description: Osgood had one catch for 17 yards on Sunday against the Redskins.
Insight: Osgood recorded his first catch of the season for the Chargers but he has little fantasy value. (

Description: Osgood is on the trading block, according to the San Diego Union-Tribune. The Chargers are hoping to get a late round pick for Osgood.
Insight: Osgood's skills do not translate to fantasy as he is a fourth receiver and special teams player. Perhaps a new team will find a reason to play him at receiver. (
